More than ten gorillas contract coronavirus at American zoo

Thirteen gorillas have been diagnosed with a new coronavirus infection at Zoo Atlanta, USA reported by The Guardian.

The animals began to show symptoms such as a runny nose, mild cough, and loss of appetite. The test results showed that 13 out of 20 gorillas are infected with the coronavirus. According to the source of the publication, the primates could have been infected with COVID-19 by the caretaker, who wore a protective suit and showed no symptoms.

Currently, the US zoo staff is monitoring the condition of the primates. Special attention is paid to the 60-year-old Ozzy, who may be at increased risk for complications from COVID-19. After recovery, the animals will be vaccinated with a special Zoetis vaccine. Other zoo residents, including orangutans, Sumatran tigers, African lions and the clouded leopard, are scheduled to receive the vaccine in the coming days.

It was previously reported that endangered snow leopards are improving after contracting COVID-19 at the San Diego Zoo. It is not clear how the animals were infected.
